ST. LOUIS (June 6, 2018) – TierPoint, a leading provider of secure, connected data center and cloud solutions at the edge of the internet, today announced that it successfully completed its most recent round of HIPAA, PCI-DSS, GLBA, and SSAE 18 annual compliance audits for all data centers it operates.
SSAE 18 is the new auditing standard initiated by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) in 2017. TierPoint met SSAE 18 standards for both SOC 1 Type II and SOC 2 Type II audits for all its data centers. The SOC audits objectively evaluate the effectiveness of controls in place to address operations, compliance, and financial reporting.
“Security, privacy protection, and reliability are paramount to the success of our customers and a priority for our company,” said TierPoint Chief Security Officer Paul Mazzucco. “Year round, we deploy rigorous testing and infrastructure analyses to help make sure we not only meet but exceed industry standards in all our data centers.”
Compliance certifications are considered important by many organizations seeking a colocation, cloud or hybrid IT solution with uniform processes and practices that meet industry standards for physical and operational efficiency, privacy protection, and security. With 42 data centers in 20 U.S. markets, TierPoint is among a select few national infrastructure providers that have achieved compliance certifications for such a large national footprint of facilities.
